This new decal sheet from IsraDecal includes markings for many 1/72 Israeli Air Force Mosquitos in 3 different paint schemes and some 1/72 T-6 Texan/Harvard in 4 different paint schemes.  38 planes are featured in the instruction booklet, but the serial numbers are separate numbers so you can combine them to create more aircraft.

The 12 page instruction booklet is clear and includes color profiles and a 3 view profile showing stencil placement for the Mosquito.  The paint schemes include a Yellow trainer paint scheme, a Silver Dope scheme and a brown/green camo scheme for the Mosquito and a variety of paint schemes for the T-6 Texan/Harvards.  There are a variety of national insignia and these are available on this decal sheet.  Some of the planes do feature noseart and/or stripes on the wingtips.  The decals are of course flawless and in perfect register.
